Important Christian History

IMPORTANT CHRISTIAN HISTORY

The Synagogue Church, is according to Christian tradition, where Jesus studied and prayed. According to the Bible, this is where he gave his famous sermon, declaring himself as the Messiah to his Jewish village members. This sermon infuriated the congregants, who allegedly dragged him to Mount Precipice planning to push him downhill until he jumped and disappeared. Today, the Synagogue Church belongs to the Greek-Catholic community. According to historians, this synagogue became attributed as the one where Jesus was praying after the Byzantine period. During this time all early Jewish holy sites were destroyed by the Romans at the end of the Second Temple period. Most ancient Galilee synagogues are from the third to sixth century.
